5:00pm
as always. that's how fox reports on this sunday, september 9th, 2012. i'm harris falkner, thanks for watching. have a fabulous week, get all you need with huckabee. he starts in five. . >> tonight on huckabee. >> all those delegates opposed say no. >> god gets booed at the dnc. why was god such a sore topic at the convention? and-- >> i didn't say he said that. >> the democratic party chair caught lying about israel's view of republicans. israel's deputy speaker responds. plus chuck norris says the president is fundamentally transforming america. >> we can no longer sit quietly or stand on the sidelines and watch our country go the way of socialism or something worse. >> chuck norris, the conscious for barack obama. >> ladies and gentlemen, governor mike huckabee.
5:01pm
[applause] hello, everybody. what a great audience we've got here today. and welcome to huckabee from the fox news studios in new york city. okay. here is a little confession i want to make to start the show. i'm really, really glad that the political conventions are over. [applause] >> now, look, it is not like that i'm unhappy or don't care about politics because i do. i mean, unlike some people who just eat it up in the same way that some spectator, now, some overweight fan sitting around in his man cave-in front of the big tv screen, and stuffing cheetos in his face and liking the nfl like that. i like politics and noi what it's like to be on the field, but i've got to tell you my favorite moment of all the political conventions was
5:02pm
this: . >> delegates, this convention is adjourned. (laughter) >> i'm just glad it's over. two weeks, back-to-back, four hours a night. i'm burned out. so, in case you missed either of the political conventions or even if you saw every minute, i want to give you a little page of some of the memorable moments with the added attraction of my not very be tiff and highly opinionated view of those moments. earlier in the week we got word that the dnc left a few weeks out of its platform that had been there before and caused the party so much grief that they had to vote to change the platform back, in order to put the word god in there and acknowledge that jerusalem is the capital of israel. here is how that vote went. >> all of those delegates in favor say aye. >> aye. >> all those delegates opposed say no. >> no--
5:03pm
in the opinion of the -- let me do that again. all of those delegates in favor say aye. >> aye. . >> all of those delegates opposed say no. >> no. (laughter) i, uh, i guess --. >> what they're going to do. >> i'll did that one more time. all those delegates in favor say aye. >> aye. >> all those delegates opposed say no. >> no. >> in the opinion of the chair two-thirds of voters in the affirmative, the notion is adopted and the platform has been amended has shown on the screen. >> okay.
5:04pm
[applause] >> it was a priceless moment. first of all, i think it's the first time in american history where there was a split vote on god. but i've got just oned for the chairman, belltone, you need a hearing device, mr. mayor. if you really thought that two-thirds of that crowd said aye, i thought i had a hearing issue. brother, you got a big one, i'll tell you that now. what a moment. what an embarrassing moment and distraction from everything, but also, not just an embarrassing one, what a revealing moment. what a revealing moment to say, yeah, we're not sure if we want to put god back in the language of our platform and then to say, well, we're not too sure whether we're really going to stand by israel or not. well, this was a convention about reelecting president obama, a time for the democrats and president himself to explain why he deserves another four years. >> america, i never said the
5:05pm
journey would be easy and i won't promise that now. yes, our path is harder, but it leads to a better place. yes, our road is longer, but we travel it together. we don't turn back. we leave no one behind. we pull each other up. we draw strength from our victories and we learn from our mistakes, but we keep our eyes fixed on that distant horizon, knowing it's with us and surely blessed to be citizens of the greatest nation on earth. thank you, god bless you, god bless these united states. >> well, making it up a little bit. god bless you and god bless the united states. there was a part of that that really caught my ear and it's when he said the road ahead may be longer. now, let me think about that a minute. four years ago, we started on this same road.
5:06pm
four years later, the road is longer? how does a road get longer if you've been travelling on it for four years already. does that mean we've actually gone backwards p and start all over again to try to catch up? maybe that would tell us all we need to know about how to vote in november, if we're actually further behind than we were when we started off the road. just a thought for my part. [applause]. all week long democrats are asked whether americans with better off than they were four years ago. president barack obama took office, the economy was 9 full percent of gdp. we were losing 750,000 jobs, are we doing better than at that today? the answer is yes. >> that's a big surprise to most americans. i'm glad he revealed that to us, with 23 million american out of work and 368,000
5:07pm
dropping completely out of the work force this past month, i guess, a lot of of us are just not quite seeing it all stack up that we're doing better. gas is twice as high as it was four years ago, food prices up 15%. more americans have lost their home to foreclosure, we actually have the lowest number of people in the job force in september of 1981. dick morris, i think, had the best comment about the brilliant job president clinton did. it was pa fantastic speech i'll give him credit for that. he assessed it this way, it was like maybe a defense attorney giving the closing arguments, very passionately, for his client when he knew he was guilty. but that's just dick's thought and i think he might be be right. [applause]. so, another big moment this week, texas mayor julian castro in the key he note address. >> it's a choice between the country where the middle class
5:08pm
pays more so that millionaire pay less or a country where everybody pays their fair share so we can reduce the deficit and create the jobs of the future. >> okay, that was the san antonio mayor, julian castro. now, when he said he just wants everyone to pay their fair share, particularly the millionaires. let me bring some news to him. the top 5% income earners in america, pay 57% of all the taxes in the country. and let me repeat that. obviously, it hasn't sunk through to some of the folks in the democratic party yet. the top 5%, that villainized group of people that they like to beat up on, pay 57% of all the taxes in the country. and when he talks about the fair share, just remember that 50% of the people in the country don't pay any tax, they pay no federal income tax at all. they may pay some state and local taxes, but at the
5:09pm
federal level they don't pay any taxes. i'm not sure where you end up with a fair share, half the people don't pay anything and 5% pay almost 60%. maybe we need to talk about a fair share, somebody ain't getting to fair share out of that. i want you to hear the message played at a video at dnc convention in charlotte. >> we are committed to all people. you believe you can use government in a good way? >> government's the only thing that we all belong to. >> and government is the only thing we all belong to. i think government has a wonderful purpose. our founders did, they were right. but let me challenge that idea that government is the only thing we all belong to. that we all belong to government. you see, i think the founding fathers, maybe they have a little different take, they thought that government belonged to us, that we only are governed by the consent of the governed.
5:10pm
they actually wrote that right there in the constitution. they make clear that we understood that we get our authority ap our rights not from the government, but from god. and that the government is simply there to protect our god given rights not give them to us. now, we don't belong to the government. they don't own us. we own them, we're the bosses they're supposed to be the servants and maybe that's why a difference of opinion between the folks on left and right today. are we individualists, 0 collectivists, i'm the not sure who you think you belong to. i kind of think i belong to god first and the country is we all own and it belongs to us. the government is not our god. just my thought. [applause]. well, coming up, the deputy speaker of israel, he'll be reacting to the vote on israel at dnc and the democratic
5:11pm
party chairwoman's-- let's just say her unfortunate mistruths. we'll talk about that when we come back.

5:14pm
>> remember >> remember last week we played debby wasserman schultz' comment about me. >> you know, i think mike huckabee's comment was an example how he isn't familiar with the voice of a strong woman. >> actually it's not strong women that bother me, it's dishonest ones who do. and the party's chairwoman was caught lying about the relationship between republicans and israel. debby wasserman schultz was quoted earlier as israel's
5:15pm
ambassador to the united states michael lauren, she said that he said that republicans are dangerous for israel. warren respond today her accusation with a statement saying, i categorically denied that i everble policies as harmful to israel, bar partisan support is paramount national interest for israel and we have great fwrendz on both sides of the aisle. wasserman says her words were twisted on purpose. >> i didn't say he said that and unfortunately, that that comment was reported by a conservative newspaper, not surprising that they would deliberately misquote me. guess what surfaced shortly after that interview, a tape of wasserman schultz actually saying just what she had denied saying. >> we know and i've heard no less than dr. michael orrin say this what the republicans are doing is dangerous for israel. >> oh, okay. well, joining me now, deputy
5:16pm
speaker of the israel, author of the book "israel, the will to prevail", danny, great to see you again. [applause]. >> great to be here. >> israel was uncharacteristically at the center of attention at the democratic national convention in part because of the language left out of the platform regarding jerusalem being the capital and they eventuallily put it in back n how did it strike you when that happened. >> it was a mistake and-- but right to look the at the platform, look at the policies of president obama, and-- he told us two years ago, do not leave home in jerusalem and with the platform, i can tell you and in the book very clearly president obama was not a friend of israel, he was pushing us to make concessions in jerusalem and with all due respect to all the conventions, jerusalem will be
5:17pm
capital of israel and jewish people no matter any decision t. >> i think a lot of of americans, most americans agree that jerusalem is the capital of israel. your book comes out at an amazingly timely moment because there's so much attention regarding what's going on in israel in relationship to iran. i know you're not going to talk about state secrets. do they feel that the united states is poised to stand with israel in the event of conflict with iran over iran's nuclear armaments. >> to act and to do something, what i'm seeing is speeches, conventions, is the u.n. next in two week's time and generally come again to the u.n. and deliver another speech. we don't see good actions. good actions and exceptions, we need the white house to take action against iran and facing nimby, not in my back
5:18pm
yard. it is in your back yard and it is come-- iran is a threat to the american people. >> i think a lot of us are very concerned that israel is not the primary target. that's what you just said and what your book talks about. israel is the little state, but they see the u.s. as the big one ands ultimate target. what happens to israel is a precursor what could happen to the united states and when iran's president says they will wipe israel off the face of the map. people have to take that seriously. >> just listen to the iranians, it's clear, they're not hiding. they first will go after the people and the jews in israel and after that go after the people, the people in the u.s. and europe. you cannot ignore it. what we are seeing today. we don't see-- when you ask for partnership, and ally and friends, and the-- israel will act by itself and
5:19pm
it's harder, but you cannot wait forever because governor-- against the jewish people you cannot see whether it's serious or not. >> i want to be fair, the history of the suspects have been very strong for israel, both democratic presidents and members of congress who are democrats have been very, very strong for israel and most of them remain so. the difference seems to be not in the members of the senate or the house, and the democrats in general, but the president. >> i have many friends who are democrats and like i said, the prime minister spoke of the congress that deal and got standing ovations from both sides of the aisle, but the president is a different story. he has an agenda and he's trying-- if look, he spoke in kay row, a beautiful speech in cairo, looks what's happening in cairo, in syria, in iran and we need action and we need some real partnership from the u.s. >> well, i think your book is
5:20pm
a must-read especially right now before the election and israel, the will to prevail and one thing i've come to learn in some 20 trips to israel dating all the way back to 1973. the israelis are not going to stand down and let somebody annihilate them. they will stand strong and i hope the united states stands with you without any hesitation or doubt. because, what happens to israel is what will ultimately happen to the united states if we don't stand together. >> and look at israel, we feel that the modern israel it's a miracle. but we changed the reality. and we did not wait for the u.s. to come and save us, we did not wait to anyone, we took the responsibility and changed the reality and i think that will be the case and i know it's complex in the middle east, israel. if you want to understand better, you can read the book, but you will not understand because it's a very dynamic area and affect what's here in the u.s. as well.
5:21pm
>> thank you for coming, always a delight to see you. >> looking forward to seeing you in jerusalem again. >> that's right, next year in jerusalem. >> and the freedom of speech and religion and argued they ought to be free to speak about anything, including politics, they're fighting the irs, just because they think that setting limitations on what they say in church is wrong. one of the pastors joins me next to talk about it. [ male announcer ] wouldn't it be cool if we took the nissan altima and reimagined nearly everything in it? gave it greater horsepower and best in class 38 mpg highway... ...advanced headlights... ...and zero gravity seats? yeah, that would be cool. ♪ introducing the completely reimagined nissan altima. it's our most innovative altima ever. nissan. innovation that excites. ♪
5:22pm
nissan. innovation that excites. chances are, you're not made of money, so don't overpay for motorcycle insurance. geico, see how much you could save. i took my son fishing every year. we had a great spot, not easy to find, but worth it. but with copd making it hard to breathe, i thought those days might be over. so my doctor prescribed symbicort. it helps significantly improve my lung function starting within five minutes. symbicort doesn't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. with symbicort, today i'm breathing better. and that means...fish on! symbicort is for copd including chronic bnchitis and emphysema. it should not be taken more than twice a day. symbirt may increase your risk of lung infections,
5:23pm
osteoporosis, d some eye problems. tell your doctor if you have a heart condition or high blood pressure before taking it. with copd, i thought i'd miss our family tradition. now symbicort significantly improves my lung function, starting within 5 minutes. and that makes a difference in my breathing. today, we're ready for whatever swims our way. ask your doctor about symbicort. i got my first prescription free. or click to learn more. [ male announcer ] if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help. [ male announcer ] if you can't afford your medication, having necessary school supplies can mean the difference between success and failure. the day i start, i'm already behind. i never know what i'm gonna need. new school, new classes, new kids. it's hard starting over. to help, sleep train is collecting school supplies for local foster children. bring your gift to any sleep train,
5:24pm
and help a foster child start the school year right. not everyone can be a foster parent, but anyone can help a foster child. >> while democrats are trying to figure out whether or not they want god in their platform, the irs is trying to control what some pastors can say about the political issues that matter most to their congregations. and the organization of lawyers called alliance
5:25pm
defending freedom, is defending churches who are underinvestigation by the the irs for expressing their political views during their sermons. now, they've marked october 7th as pull pitt freedom sunday to defy the irs speech from the pulpit. and the skyline church near san diego, one of the largest in the country. jim, it's good to see you and thanks for being here. >> jim, it's a pretty bold thing to say on october 7th, a bunch of pastors, hundreds, maybe thewes across the country are going to stand at their pulpits and essentially say the irs can't tell us what we can or can't say. how did this come about? >> well, in july the 2nd, 1954, the memo was passed in the state. now, there was no discussion of it, just a voice vote, but the result of it was that, it began to put a muzzle on churches and we lost 166 years of freedom in the pulpit.
5:26pm
so, that's why the attorneys, 2,200 attorneys rose up and are encouraging pastors to take a bold step and reclaim our biblical authority and constitutional rights of the first amendment, freedom of speech and religion, and in 58 years since the johnson amendment. it had never been contested in court. there have been a lot of attempts to get to court because the belief is that it's unconstitutional. so the alliance amending freedom asked to define the johnson amendment in the pulpit and mail this to the irs. they started with 2008, 33 pastors, the next year, 84 pastors, and the next year, 100 pastors, and last year, 539 pastors, this year, be 1,000 or 2,000 pastors on the paper say intentionally will exercise their constitutional rights and record their sermon, mail it to the irs and the attorneys are willing to defend us pro bono. [applause]. >> pat, has a church ever been
5:27pm
shut down or pastor put in jail because he said something from the pulpit that the irs deems political? >> the 58 year history. in the johnson amendment. no church has lost a tax exemption. there was a church that lost a tax exemption letter for a short time for a completely different activity than what we're talking about in terms of freedom of speech and religion, no governmental intrusion in the pulpit. but in 58 years, no church has lost its tax exemption, but the law hangs over us like a damaclese sword, in a sense, chilling pastors, muzzling them and intimidating pastors tt on biblical likeiblical. tearing up a baby in the womb, for example, practice of homosexuality or the definition of marriage. people say you're too political, you're too political. no, we're simply being biblical. people don't recognize biblical sermons anymore and that's the challenge and why pastors are rising up and
5:28pm
reclaiming that which is bib cal as biblical and being bold at the pulpit. >> one of the arguments is you're tax exempt, and a tax benefit from the federal government and you therefore have to bend on the government rules what you can and can't say. how do you respond to that argument thrown at you all the time. >> the assumption is we've entered into an agreement as pastors and will not speak on so-called political issues for tax exhe thinks, that's not the way it happened. our tax exemption, churches pre-dated the irs for a long time. 1862. it's been around since our founding fathers. the founding fathers understood clearly that what the government taxes, the government can control, and the government can kill. so, the proper definition of the separation of church and state is, that the federal government has-- no government has any control at all over the church, over the pastor, over what's said on the pulpit.
5:29pm
no governmental intrusion onto the the pulpit at all. so that our notion of tax exemption comes from our founding fathers who understand the right definition of separation of church and state. >> on october 7th. it sounds like pastors across america, including you, from the pulpit to whatever you wish to say. if you get into trouble, one, come see us and talk about it and number two, i'll help bail you out and do my best to-- >> and go to freedom.org to find out more about it. >> i hope folks will. the simple reality, we need to remember, is that the very first line in the bill of rights is that congress shall make no law and then it goes on to describe congress can do, it never says what churches can't do, never says what citizens can't do, never says what pastors can't do, it says what congress cannot do. yet, they seem to be doing it
5:30pm
anyway. ought to be fun to watch on october the 7th. glad to have jim here. >> good to be with you, my friend. >> thank you so much, my friend. chuck norris says that president obama is enabling a radically progressive secular state and one of ten reasons he says we ought not to vote to reeject president obama. chuck norris comes to be with me next.

>> live from america's news headquarters. a death sentence for iraq's sunni vice-president. deadly attacks in more than 90 people killed and 300 wounded and the group taking responsibility, not identified, but iraq's interor ministry blames al-qaeda. the vice-president fled to turkey and charged with being the master mind with the death squads. the trial for him and negotiators in chicago working to avert a midnight strike deadline. pay and job security, the key issues would be the teacher's first strike in 25 years and planning to keep some schools open a half day, if the teachers walk, the students will have to place to go. there would be no official classes and chicago is the third largest school district. i'm harris falkner, now, let's get you back to huckabee. >> if you'd like to comment on
5:35pm
tonight's show, e-mail us at huck mail@foxnews.com. >> mike: it's no secret that chuck norris is politically active and conservative and regularly writes a column for town hall. he and his wife recently recorded a video message why they think it's the most important election of our lifetime. >> we are here to talk about a growing concern we all share. if we look to history, our great country and freedom are under attack. and we're at a tipping point, and quite possibly our country as we know it, may be lost forever if we don't change the course our country is headed. here to explain why he's so concerned about the direction of our country is chuck norris. please welcome. [applaus [applause] >> good to have you here, chuck.
5:36pm
well, they love you here. >> oh, i love them. >> oh. >> and you and gina have just put out a very provocative public service announcements that says this election puts everything on the line. what motivated you to say that this is the election of our lifetime? >> well, you know what? gina and i were talking and in just talking about the future of our country and you know, we felt that president obama tried his very best, he just wasn't good enough and the thing is, and it's the lack of experience, you know, like in any profession you've got to be experienced in what you do. like in an acting you've got a take a the lot of acting courses, but the thing is that we need a leader to -- that has the experience to lead us to the next four years, and so we-- we realize that our freedom is in jeopardy in our country today.
5:37pm
and so, gina and you i sat down and wrote that speech in about 15 minutes and so i was doing a gym infomercial so we sat-- the producers said can we do that psa? of course, and film before us, and they were started. this week during the democratic national convention when the big hubbub happened over the platform language and god was taken out and put back in, what did that say to you as you watched all of that unfold? >> well, it's a show of how they really think, that they have no reason to believe that god should be an integral part of our society. and you know, joe biden, you know, as he gave his speech, i gave him four pinochios, because his nose kept getting longer and longer as he kept talking.
5:38pm
[applause]. joe biden, i'm sorry. >> mike: now what? he is a lot more afraid of you than you ever have to be of him. (laughter) that's for sure. you regularly write articles that appear in town hall.com and other publications, and on the internet. you've not been afraid to be politically active. one of your acting cohorts clint eastwood took the stand. not many conservatives do. why is it important as a celebrity status to say look, i have deep convictions about america and here is what they are. >> i'm extremely worried about my children and my grandchildren and the thing is that if we don't get off the course we're headed right now, they are he' not going to have a future. you know, we've been there and done that, but the thing is, our kids and our grandkids are the ones that we have to be worried about and that's why i write this article weekly, i'm so concerned about the future of our country and that if we
5:39pm
don't get going down the-- we're at a grass roads right now, mike, and we can either go to the left path, which is uncontrollable government that dictates everything that goes on in our lives, or we can take the right path where we limit government and let us dictate what the government does, and that's really what my articles are all about. >> you had a recent one in which you talked about ten reasons why we shouldn't reelect president obama, and what are some of those reasons? and might not get to all ten, but a couple that come to mind. >> like i said earlier, the thing is, i think he tried his best. i don't think he was malicious in how he governs, it's just that it's not the right way. and i realized that and he-- and he hasn't been successful. you know, the thing is, he said in his speech i'm going to get 1 million jobs in the next four years, well, we've got 23 million people unemployed and these are democrats, independents, and republicans. and so, i'm just saying to the democrats, you know, you
5:40pm
really need to search your heart. you now, and saying, do you want another four years of a man, not the-- forget about party politics, do you want another man for four years, who has not had the experience to govern these four years to govern another four years and i think if you look in your heart, you'll realize that's not the one-- >> if there's an important big issue that you feel overshadows everything else in in election, as to why we should or shouldn't vote for barack obama, tell us what it is. you mentioned experience, you know, the thing is what worries me, if he gets elected, we're going to have some supreme-- u.s. supreme court justices retiring and so, that means that obama is going to be putting in more liberals, u.s. justices. and i think that's going to jeopardize our constitution, it's going to jeopardize our second amendment rights for sure, because they will

eliminate gun controls in our country. so this is what i'm extremely worried about, mike, is that, is that if obama gets reelected that's the direction we'll be going and it really has me concerned. >> you know, when you said about the supreme court justice as the the entire audience, you can hear them responding, a lot of people forget that's one of the most permanent powers of the president, so much can be undone, but that has long-term generational implications, and a very significant thing. >> well, like ronald reagan said, a thousand years of darkness and everybody bringing that up. that was ronald reagan's statement not mine, but the thing is, it's true though. if we don't go down the right path we could enter a very dark period of our lives in this country. and that's extremely concerning to me, for my kids and my grandkids. i'm really concerned about that. >> chuck, i'm so glad you're here. by the way, i want to talk about a new movie that chuck wants you to see, it's called
5:42pm
the last ounce of courage. when chuck says go see it, you the better go see it! and the film's star is going to join chuck and me right after the break. stay with us. it can be to bree and what that feels like. it can be to bree copd iludes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiva helps corol my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open a full 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. and it's steroid-free spiriva does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell yr doctor if you have kidy problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you ta, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if yr breathing suddenly worsens, your throat or tongue swells, you get hives, vision changes or eye pain, or problems passing ure. other side effects include dry mouth and constipation.
5:43pm
nothing can reverse copd. spiriva helps me breathe better. does breathing with copd weigh you down? ask your doctor if spiriva can help. you see us, at the start of the day. on the company phone list that's a few names longer. you see us bank on busier highways. on once empty fields. everyday you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all of us serving you, around the country, around the corner. us bank. trick question. i love everying about this count! including prilosec otc. you know one pill each morning treats your frequent heartburn so you can enjoy all this grt land of ours has to offer like demolition derbies. and drive thru weddings.
5:44pm
so if you're one of those people who gets heartburn and then treats day after day, block the acid with prilosec otc and don't get heartburn in the first pla. [ male announcer ] one pill each mornin hours. zero heartburn.
5:45pm
(applause) >> we're back with chuck norris to talk about a big movie he's is a clipof, as many i. called the lance ounce of courage. >> here is a clip. >> if you're a muslim and pray in the middle of the town square, it's one of your rights. if you're jewish, you want to display your menorah, go ahead. and accept my admiration for standing up for what you believe in, but don't tell me the majority of us that believe in jesus christ, that we don't have the right to celebrate the day of his birth. >> mike: jing chuck norris and
5:46pm
me is the star of the movie, marshal welcome. >> thank you, sir, glad to be here. >> mike: i had an opportunity to see the screening of this film this summer and it's a powerful movie that challenges people to understand what's happened to this country, our rights as americans, to speak our mind, and what motivated you to be part of this project. >> it's very simple, air, faith, family, freedom, what's what the movie stands for, it's about our right to say every single solitary version as we worship and support our military that's out there, every day, making sure that we're safe. [applause] >> you know, one of the things that struck me about the film is that it doesn't try to say that everybody ought to be christians or that everybody move out of the way and let the christians have all the space. it says, look, everybody ought to be able to freely worship, just don't let the christians
5:47pm
be the one group that get shoveled off the public square. >> go ahead, marshal. >> well, i believe that very strongly, and when you see every day that people are allowed to worship, as they want to, and this openly acknowledged by everybody, our government, for instance, as you have the right. however, when it does come down to christians, expressing what they feel, or having their crosses up, which are being challenged every single solitary day, we're told we don't have the right. our children can't pray in church anymore and they don't have the right to the pledge of allegiance. why not pledge of allegiance to the flag because there's enough people out this putting their butts on the line to make sure that we're safe. [applause]. >> mike: chuck this aren't many things that get the chuck norris seal of approval. that's a pretty rare get. you've given this movie, the chuck norris seal of approval, why. >> only the time with
5:48pm
huckabee. (laughter) >> no, i saw a screening of it like you did. >> mike: yeah. >> and i was so taken by it, i said, this movie every american, man, woman and child, must see this movie. and you know, i have, like i say, i have nothing to do with this movie, but the thing is, i really was impassioned by it and he gave us a performance at the end of this movie that made the hair on the back of my head stand up, because when he starts talking about freedom and the lack of it going on in our country, it's a-- probably the best speech i've ever seen on television and it was unscripted that's amazing. he came, he talked from his heart and that was really quite an amazing-- >> i want to watch a little piece of that, here we go from last house of courage. >> 400 years ago, ourfore fathers left an oppressive land and the first thing they did was put on the shores of
5:49pm
the atlantic, but it was more than a cross, it was a symbol that in this land, a citizen has the freedom to worship as he or she desires or the freedom not to worship at all. >> mike: it is a power -- that's a snippet of it. chuck, i agree with you, it's one of those films if you love our military you're going to love this film because it honors the men and women of the military. >> if you love our freedom. >> mike: if you believe that your freedom of convictions is a fundamental right and standing and cheering and throwing your popcorn all over your neighbors. it's true. >> governor, if i may, when you talk about freedom it's a very, very important word. it's not the about democratic, republicans or independent freedoms, it's about all freedoms that we as americans enjoy every single solitary day. and in some cases, we're taking them for granted and all one has to do is take a
5:50pm
day like i did yesterday and walk down to the 9/11 memorial and see those names and recognize that freedom is very fragile. unless you're willing to stand up for it, you're willing to fall for nothing. >> mike: you know, if there are people who think all this have is rooted in fiction, let us be reminded that the 9/11 cross, that cross that was made, really in the heat of the furnace of the aftermath of the twin towers falling, that cross, you see it on your screen, was an inspiration to so many of the workers. >> and formed that. >> mike: tell us who formed that because i think that's a powerful point. people that formed that, first of all, god formed that. >> he really did. >> and god created that heat and he joined it together, to let us know that we will never -- he is always there for us every single solitary day and sometimes we forget to reach inside. he's always there. all you have to do is just
5:51pm
reach in and ask him to come out and he'll talk to you, now. i don't claim to be the greatest christian in the world, 'cause i've made a lot of mistakes and i'm the one that has to live those mistakes. carlos has been a great-- >> my real name is carlos, by the way. >> mike: a real good friend shall that's what that means. >> chuck. (laughter) . >> mike: thank you. chuck has supported me, his lovely wife gina and my wife, we have spent so much time together and shared so much together. we've seen his work together. and we have been to iraq together, 18,600 individual troops we spent time with and you know, it's amazing every one of them thanked us. i've never heard so much god bless yous and thank you for coming, and why are you here one question. remember that? and chuck said, because you're here.
5:52pm
>> mike: well, you want to thank both of you for being here, but most importantly, i want to thank you for the involvement in the project. and i hope that all over the country, people will go see last ounce of courage. it opens this coming friday in theaters in cities across america, i hope you have to wait in line a long time to get a ticket. the theaters will be packed to see a wonderful film that will encourage you and inspire you. thanks. >> i'll be right back with some closing thoughts.

mruz mrauz. >> mike: >> if you paid close attention to our icht. >> mike: well, if you paid close attention to our show
5:56pm
tonight. the real battle in our nation is not a political one, but a spiritual one. the pastors have to defy some rules by regulators when the first amendment states that congress isfore bidden to pass a law that would prefer one form of religious to another or prohibit anyone from freely exercising his or her faith much less the freedom to assembly. and israel stands virtually alone to fight for its existence because of the hate directed toward radical muslim extremists who think may be doing god a favor by wiping out innocent men, women and children from the face of the earth and a powerful must-see movie about a town that's told that it can't have a community christmas tree is not that farfetched at all. i hope you will see last ounce of courage. i believe it contains a very important and timely message. but i hope even more that you'll find your own last ounce of courage and stand for those things near and dear to
